Vintage Ad: Nike Air Huarache Light
words & image // Zack Schlemmer
The Nike Huarache Light running shoe is, when we see countless versions of other Nike Running classics re-re-re-released, a shoe that makes some of us want to pull our hair out with frustration when we think about how it doesn't get much love from Nike Sportswear. Maybe I'm just speaking for myself here, but I doubt it. Sure, the Stussy versions a few years back were nice, and the new Free remodel is alright, too, but we need this shoe in its original form back again. Who's with me?
In this ad we see the Huarache Light in all of its OG glory, in the original Black/Ultramarine-Cyan colorway that, like it says, is pretty sexy. Even upon the shoe's original release it didn't receive that much attention, only releasing in one colorway each for men and women, adding to its rarity and allure now. So let's go, Nike, it's time to show the Huarache Light some more love. Please!
